The donation is the result of a summer-long partnership between Jerry’s ABRA and the Mankato MoonDog’s Summer Collegiate baseball team. Each time a MoonDog’s player scored a home run, Jerry’s ABRA made a donation of $100 to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The MoonDog’s hit 47 home runs this season, 21 of those were hit at home during the 2019 season, resulting in the $4,700 donation. The contribution will be used to fund research efforts to end Alzheimer’s and Dementia for those living with the disease.
“We are so grateful for the ongoing support Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass and the Mankato MoonDog’s have shown us,” said Debbie Eddy, community engagement senior manager, Alzheimer’s Association. “Their contribution will make a difference in the lives of many local families impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
